Origin

Bodegas Borsao is located in the Campo de Borja - which they refer to as the “empire of the Garnacha“ - southeast of Rioja. Grapes are harvested from the foothills of the Moncayo mountain; at 600-700 metres above sea level, warm days are tempered by cool nights, which aids the ripening process and preserves acidity in the grape respectively. The Garnacha thrives in the extreme climate and represents 70% of production.

Grape Variety

85% Garnacha (or Grenache) with 5% Tempranillo and 10% Cabernet.

Fermentation at controlled temperatures occurs in stainless steel tanks with a 15 day maceration period. Matured in stainless steel for 2-3 month then bottled. Unoaked.

Alcohol Percentage

13.5%

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 18 months.

Producer

Bodegas Borsao was established as a cooperative in 2001, consisting of three of the most progressive cellars and 620 member growers. They are by far the dominant producer in the Campo de Borja, their vineyards covering 2,500 hectares out of the total 6,300 hectares in the region.

Food Match

Perfect with rustic and simple stews and casseroles, or a mid week chilli con carne.

Suitable for vegetarians.
